Drums was a piss break for me, after a few concerts, they all started sounding the same. I always enjoyed space, it was a good time to fire up and get in the right mood for the last section of the show.

As an aside, when Jerry would start doing the rapid "Bwa Bwa Bwa licks, we always said that was Jerry imitating the sound his water pipe made during drums.

Here's a link for a similar conversation concerning Space a few years back.

sometimes it really worked well - this was probably the most memorable drums-space for me:

Good one - thanks BD! That was new to me.

One that gets cited alot is the 4/19/82 "Raven" Space segment - I personally detest that one above any I've ever heard! On the other hand, I love the 1/22/78 McArthur Court "E.T." Space which often is listed as a fan favorite.

Well, I like the Raven space cuz that was one of my shows :-) Very "fun-weird" in situ, but I can't say I'd sit back and relax to it now, LOL.
